Hammer’s Vengeance Of She Strikes Blu-ray On February 26

There’s a lot of jobs on a film set that are very important in the creation of a movie besides being a director. Rarely do these people have their moment to shine. So I’m delighted that upcoming Blu-ray for Vengeance of She features an interview with Trevor Coop who had two very important jobs on the set. He was Clapper and Loader. What does that mean? He put the film in the camera. You screw that job up, there’s no movie. He also operated the clapper which serves to sync the sound with the film and let the actors know it’s about time to start the scene. Now Coop has a chance to tell what he saw when they were making the film and he was perched next to the camera for this Hammer production. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory that includes a bunch of new bonus features including Coop’s chance to share:
